Rosenthal was born in Hammersmith, London, the son of Christine "Chrissy" (Smith), a former Newsnight producer, and Jim Rosenthal, a television sports presenter. One of his paternal great-grandfathers was German-born physician and writer Oscar Levy. Tom Rosenthal is of Jewish heritage on his father's side. In 2011, he stated, "I get called a Jewish comedian and I'm totally fine with that, but I can't really inform either of the performances I've done this year with a Jewish background. But I have learnt a lot about the culture and it has given me great pride to do so. It is an amazing culture to learn about."
